All winning projects defined building as a freestanding object on the plot with minimum distance to public corridors.

Project of the students residence deals with the missing link in the Campus. We consider that there is no public social open space in the Campus open spaces.

Therefore, the Residency building concept primary creates this missing link- students social public space.

In the Mediterranean area, because of climate, open spaces can be used most of the year, so they represent a kind of inhabitants “living room”. One of the main issues was creating public spaces of the complex. They are counterpart to the privacy of the student rooms and function as “living room” for those “sleeping rooms”.

The building is in the moving in phase. Only by presence of usersstudents, all design objectives will be checked and fulfill. This means that open spaces will be used in numerous new and exiting ways, not aware in the design process, all visual connections will have its meaning, contributing in creating unique social experience of the students who live in residence and those just participating in this spectacle of social and sport life.

The residence is not only for students. It will serve as urban hub for the near by residential neighborhood and the surrounding.

This will trigger urban social interchange and create new forms of social intercourse. Similar processes as in traditional  Mediterranean cities.
